Norman Rockwell Museum
Discover an American treasure - see the world's largest collection of original art by Norman Rockwell, America's favorite illustrator. Located in Stockbridge, Rockwell's hometown, the museum features changing exhibits and all his great works. Be sure to visit the Gift shop.

Museum is wheelchair accessible

The museum does not permit visitors to take still or video photography inside the Museum galleries, and requests that visitors do not carry backpacks or large packages into the galleries.

The Mount Estate & Gardens
The Mount is a turn-of-the-century home that Edith Wharton designed and built based on the precepts outlined in her 1897 book "The Decoration of Houses," co-authored with architect Ogden Codman, Jr. A perfect example of the newly dawned American Renaissance, the classical revival house and its formal gardens represent the only full expression of Wharton's architectural and landscape architectural theories.

Only five percent of National Historic Landmarks are dedicated to women, and The Mount is one of them.

A guided tour reveals the history of The Mount from its building to its restoration, and chronicles Wharton's life, her remarkable achievements and her literary legacy.
The house tour features three floors of elegant formal and private rooms. Highlights include Wharton's library, her newly restored bedroom suite, and back of the house areas, including the old kitchen.

The house is fully accessible with elevators to all floors. The gardens are partially accessible.

Hancock Shaker Village
Visit Hancock Shaker Village, a registered National Landmark.
The largest Shaker museum in the east, Hancock opened as a living history museum in 1961. It contains 20 historic buildings, extensive gardens, and a significant collection of Shaker artifacts. The Round Stone Barn continues to impress visitors and scholars alike with the ingenuity of the Shakers. The village also includes Shaker craft demonstrations, historic breeds of livestock, and its restored 19th-century water system. The Center for Shaker Studies offers two exhibition galleries to the public, one dedicated to Shaker gift drawings.

Most of the village is handicap accessible
